The 54th edition of the history of science blog carnival, The Giant’s Shoulders, is out at the blog Contagions! In this carnival, you can read about:
- the forgotten Victorian romance between science and religion at Christmas time,
- interesting discussions of how the research of pseudoscience has sometimes been helpful to actual science,
- skeletal weapon trauma in medieval Ireland,
- how wind power won the American West,
- and much more!
Many thanks to Michelle Ziegler for putting together an excellent holiday history of science carnival!
The next edition of The Giant’s Shoulders will be posted on January 16th (assuming the apocalypse hasn’t struck) at The Sloane Letters Blog, hosted by Lisa Smith aka @historybeagle. Submissions as always can be sent either directly to the host, or to me or to ThonyC at Renaissance Mathematicus.
